Where to go in NYC:
Start it off right with the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade startingÂ at 11:00 a.m. on 5th Avenue and 44th Street, headingÂ up 5th Avenue to 86th St., where it turns east towards 3rd Avenue where it eventually ends there around 3:00 p.m.
For an original event, i suggest heading over to The Village Pour House –
The Uptown (982 Amsterdam)Â VPHouse will be playing true Hibernian music while offering drinks specials on pints of green beer, Guinness, car bombs and shot/brew combos. However, the name of the gameÂ is “limericks”Â such as,Â â€œThere once was a man from Nantucket…â€ Well, some people forget these bawdy poems are actually named after a town in Irelandâ€”so, to show love for St. Patrickâ€™s Day, guests will be invited to recite their favorite rhyming ditty and receive a free green beer for their effort. Even sweeter, no cover to party at this 21+ event that starts at 7 p.m.Â
For those of you in the “Downtown” area, don’t worry, their 11th st and third ave location (Village Pour House)Â will be featuring: green apple martinis, â€œKiss Me Iâ€™m Irishâ€ shots of, er, something green and of courseâ€¦the infamous green beer. Thereâ€™ll be a lucky leprechaun on hand for photo moments and also to provide one fortunate fellaâ€™ or female with his hidden â€œpot oâ€™ goldâ€ (please ask before you tear at his trousers) as well as a psychic who will see whatâ€™s to comeâ€¦weâ€™re no mediums, but when green brew is involved, itâ€™s an easy prediction that bathroom visits will be in your near, near future. Party starts at 5 p.m. with no cover and runs until the break oâ€™ dawn (or they closeâ€”whichever comes first).
